Award-winning author JOANNA SHUPE has always loved history, ever since she saw her first Schoolhouse Rock cartoon. From an early age, Joanna read every romance she could get her hands on. After graduating from college, she enjoyed a few years in sports and theater marketing but soon returned to writing by crafting her own racy historical novels.
Joanna won Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart® Award for Best Historical in 2013. Since then, her books have appeared on numerous yearly “best of” lists, including Publishers Weekly, The Washington Post, Kirkus Reviews, Kobo, and BookPage.
She currently lives in New Jersey with her two spirited daughters and dashing husband.
